Obama was in 4th or 5th grade. During recess one day , near the monkeybars The other kids in class were Chanting "Corettas got a boyfriend" Because this little girl Coretta apparently liked Obama , & Ten year old Obama pushed her

Are these two incidents even comparable? : No

Politics brings out the very worst in people, I don't know why anyone would want to work as a politician.


Ego and/or money.

In this age of Political Correctness and Tolerance I think the media is going to pretty much gloss over and ignore the fact of Rommey's mormonism.

And let's face it, it's a pretty much made up religion. (As are most religions to some extent).
But it's not like Brian Williams on 30 Rock is going to report on their baptism practices, abstianing from caffiene, polygamy, etc, etc.

Even most mainstream Christians look at mormonism and go "Yeah, they're a little 'off'."

It just won't get mentioned. Which is a bit of a shame, because this the perfect time to have a national discussion of how weird it is.

I'm glad you added that last bit about made up religions. I have to say that's funny when I hear someone say "So and so is a made up religion" and I'm thinking, "you mean like all of them?".

^ Yeah , Its funny because its ridiculously true. A good example for liberals to take it all in is Ed Schultz: Entirely Motivated in taking scalps to a sickening degree

Actually, I was referring to them switching sides if the money was right. I don't have a huge problem with what Hannity or Schultz do when it's their job to be pundits. My only issue is when someone relies on misinformation to score points.

LOLZ...the only religion that we're allowed to dissect is Islam or did you somehow miss that over the last 10+ years? And what do you expect when it's hard enough to talk about the literal cult of Scientology.

Tolerance always gets dragged into that debate somehow. Actually I shouldn't say somehow, I know exactly how it happens. Conservatives think they can use it to prove that liberals are just as intolerant as they are. In truth they misunderstand the call for tolerance in the first place. Just because you tolerate something or someone doesn't mean you have to like them or even think it/they makes any sense. I tolerate plenty of things and people, but I'm also going to point out elements of it/them that I think are ridiculous. It isn't being intolerant if you've got valid criticisms.

so essentially politics has now grown to a maturity rate equal to that of 4th grade playground fights.

Maybe it isn't the policy that's screwing us over, but the people working on it. Is it any wonder that nothing gets done?


In case you hadn't noticed, most people walk around with the mentality of a 4th grader these days.

So apparently the Secretary of State for Arizona is a birther and wants to see proof of his birth in Hawaii that doesn't include a birth certificate and says that it's possible that Obama won't be included in the ballot. L.O.L.

The "I am not a birther" remark of Bennet's caught my eye. Motherfucker, you are not a secretary of state. If you were, you'd know your own codes and bylaws. President Elects aren't required to be re-certified. Hell , people that were on previous ballots that won the majority of private votes dont need to be re-certified. Al Gore wouldn't have needed to be re-certified if he wanted to be on the ballot back in February

Man, I just realized that Mitty Rom hasnt said anything of substance in about half a year. Dude...stop ripping on the current president and tell him what you will do different.

"I'll get to that in a minute....have you seen what suits Obama wears? Communist suits made in china by 10 year olds....yea."


And Obama hasn't done anything of substance with his entire administration, except "killing" bin Laden, which according to Democrats, Obama did all by himself, like he's freakin' Rambo...

Well this is the etch a sketch candidate, I'd say restarting at 0 is his plan basically.

He's a zero sum candidate. All told , the combined effect of Romney's campaign rests with the short attention spans of Americans. Long before that 'etch a sketch' remark became part of the vernacular George Will called him "The pretzel Candidate"

Obama has been pretty underwhelming I'd agree, but I wouldn't got as far to say that he's done nothing.

I think the health care law (if it gets upheld) is pretty substantial--even if it was far less than I'd liked as someone who supports having universal healthcare. But it will still cover a lot more people, and already made positive changes in terms of companies not being able to drop people for pre-existing conditions etc.

He ended combat in Iraq, and commiting to getting out of Afghanistan soon despite pressure from military leaders to stay longer.

Ending don't ask, don't tell is also a fairly decent accomplishment IMO.

Also some positive changes with consumer protection and putting more restrictions on credit card companies etc.

To which I'd add : Lilly Ledbetter, Embryonic Stem Cells , New START treaty , Chief Tech Officer , Pell Grant expansion minus the Middlemen within the student loan process ,. .

I've gotta get some Mike Coffman off my chest. I'm sure you've all heard the original remarks and the subsequent "interview" where he declined to elaborate and regurgitated the same robotic response half a dozen times. Today he wrote an article in the Denver Post
http://www.denverpos...iate-boneheaded

Let me start off by saying , hes just another vacant innocuous career politician missing the two brain cells required to rub together to form a thought. Having said that this goes for every public figure: Fuck your "Sorry"
Everyone over the age of 20 knows that even sincere apologies are only the start not the end. You didnt "Restore" The Presidents standing and you didnt "repair" your own dignity.

The truth is, we are all human and we all make mistakes. This was my mistake, and I'm not afraid to own up to it.


Owning up to a mistake without doing anything about it doesn't make you more "human" buddy. You were Human when you made the mistake , human when you apologized , and an asshole human now that its over.

I don't know this guy or his history, but that sounded alot more sincere then any other apology I've read in a long time.

What else do you want him to do?

It doesn't make snese, he claims he's always rejected the notion that Obama was anything but American, then he makes that comment. Makes me think that what he has publicly said and what her personally thinks are two different things, and he accidentally spoke his true feelings. Which also makes him a damn liar if that's the case. He probably just feels that going birther would be bad for his image, so he probably keeps it to himself or only talks about it to other like minded people in private.

Basically he slipped up and let his true feelings out, oops.

Yeah, that was far better than McCain's answer and the most decent apology I've ever seen from a Republican or any politician that I can recall. No half-assed "I'm sorry if you were offended" here. Although, I can see how it would've been better to have never said it to begin with. Then again, the Republican party is now the party of CRAZY so...

That's the truth. I hate those apologies like "sorry if you're a douche who can't take a joke"

If you give an apology like that then you're the douche

Seemingly sincere apology aside, I still think he's full of shit. That or he's suffering from dissociative identity disorder.

While it's great to listen to your kids' ideas, there's also a time when dads simply need to be dads. In this case, it would've been helpful for him to explain to Malia and Sasha that while her friends parents are no doubt lovely people, that's not a reason to change thousands of years of thinking about marriage. Or that – as great as her friends may be – we know that in general kids do better growing up in a mother/father home. Ideally, fathers help shape their kids' worldview."

well... so far 25% reported, and Walker is up 100k.

early polls on Monday etched out a <5% win for Walker. Even less than last year.
